Blackfriars station is without doubt one of the nicest stations in London - it's modern, clean and well kept. But, it's also one of the busiest - if you can avoid being there between the hours of 8-10am and 5-7pm I'd recommend it.

Since travelling from this station, I think it's rather pretty on the outside with lovely glass panels to give it that 'futuristic' look I feel with lovely views across London over the Thames on the upper platforms. The main entrance is flanked with a Flower Stool (a handy one for all those that need flowers on the way home!), there is also a 'Lola's' cupcake stand for those sweet tooth... more
